Expect delays due to the possibility of freezing rain

There is a possibility of freezing rain in effect for the next few days. Please take care as you head out or wait to catch your bus.

Presto Delay

Some OC Transpo customers are experiencing delayed updates to the balance displayed in their PRESTO account. OC Transpo is working to resolve this backlog, and balances should appear correctly again within a few days. Until then, please note that fare is still deducted when you tap your card to ride, and you can still load funds normally.
